In the past 40 years, the rate of lung cancer in women has quadrupled. Fazal Khan, MD, of Centegra Primary Care says more women die of lung cancer each year than of breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer combined. If you smoke or are exposed to secondhand smoke or asbestos, talk to your Centegra Primary Care physician about your risk factors. Early detection is key in the treatment of lung cancer, and your doctor will help you take steps toward a healthier life.
